    Helpful staff and good prices. Nice view of the Acropolis from the rooftop terrace

    Not the best location

    The Economy Hotel location is very good and easy access to most of my requirements in sightseeing the whole of Athens (Within Walking Distance). Staff services were great and the hotel is clean. Breakfast was good and they also provided free half hour Internets. Would strongly recommend people to stay. Thank you Economy Hotel.

    I found the economy hotel to be a great respite from Athens. Once the windows were closed, their was no outside noise, easily allowing a good nights sleep.

    The hotel emailed precise instructions on how to get there, and on arrival the guy on the desk was tremendously helpful with detailed advice on activities, transport, hotel facilities etc.. The room was basic, but clean and functional. Breakfast good. Some people have made negative comments re location, but we found it really good - very handy to all the tourist stuff and a bit sleazy in the back streets but safe and convenient if you keep to the main drag. Again, some have commented negatively on noise but we found it very quiet (double-glazed windows). I think the hotel is classed as 2 star, but we thought it should be 3.

    Was initially uncomfortable that hotel required prepayment with a no refund policy but not a real problem.

    Staff were excellent. Intially recieved an email giving detailed directions to the hotel and the various modes of transport to get there. They informed us of the sites to see in Athens. When we left early in the morning to get the ferry, they arranged for breakfast to be available for us. Location is perfect.....only 10 minutes walk way from bars/resturants

    Beds are very hard......but this is a complaint for all hotels in Greece

    Good Location 5 minutes walk from metro, 10 minutes walk to plaka. Clean and Tidy, offers good continental buffet breakfast, which was included in our rate. Air con in the room. We were on 8th floor and had a nice balcony with chairs.

    There was no evening dining located at the Hotel and not many choices nearby, you would probably have to walk to the Plaka.

    Courtsey of the staff,and cleanliness and central location.I will be failing in my duty if i do not praise one man,Mr John,at the reception for his courtsey,guiding and pleasant manners.

    I had a very pleasant stay at Economy Hotel. The location is very convenient, to get to Plaka it is only a 10 min. walk, without having to go via Omonia Square. The staff is friendly, the rooms are nice, with small balconies. The breakfast is ok. I have stayed at several hotels in the same price range in Athens and I like this one best.

    clean place with excellent staff

    noisy area so forget about having your windows open...

    This is my third stay at the Economy. I checked in at midnight, and had no problems. The room was quiet and comfortable and very clean. The next day, John, who works at the front desk helped me figure out how to get to the airport. The location is excellent as it is close to the metro, as well as Plaka.

    I think sometimes the water pressure comes and goes in the shower as well as the temperature. The shower is small, but this is normal for Greece. The breakfast ends at 9:30 AM, so it's a bit tough to sleep in.

    Hotel in the center of Aten at a low price.

    Noisy surrounding, one glass windows. Air conditioner was not in use, due to management decision. To be able to sleep without being to warm in the night, I had to open the window and the result was even more noise. One night, at 4 in the morning, there was a fight on the street below.

  • Older travelers

    Easy access to Piraeus (by taxi) and to the Airport (via Train from Monastiraki Square, close enought to walk with luggage.

    Arrived middle of the night and found Omonia Square a little bit frightening with many men at street looking junkies or dru

    The staff was the most helpful we have ever received in our travels throughout Europe. If you do not stay here you are just not wise! The location is superb and for the money it is the best.
